Also the left signal indicator on the dash does not light up and when i turn the left signal arm on i can hear a queit clicking of the hazard relay. When i turn right signal on everything works fine..
I have checked all other bulbs and thery seem fine. The sockets do not have any corrosion and are not wet....
Is there a way of testing the relay before spending $60 at the dealer for a new relay?
Any help would be appreciated..
Since the lights on the Right side work, your flasher/relay should be fine. I would use a continuity tester to check that new 3157 bulb you bought. It'* extremely rare that a new bulb is bad, but ya neva' know until you test it. ALL The stop lights work (right?) so the issue is up front. I would use a VOM to check for current coming to the signal part of the contact within the socket. It could be a broken wire going to the socket.
Hmmm....after rereading your post, I get the feel'n that the rear Stop Lights are not working either on the left side. I would check those bulbs as well.
